I acquired this medal bar from a fellow member many years ago, so long now that I forget his name. It was missing the MVO and had a spurious LSD in the last place, so I fitted a 1905 MVOmdK and an officer's LSD. I'm not sure if this combo is possible, but I think it's a nice looking bar.

Servus VtwinVince,

i think this wasn't a ribbon bar buckle made by an officer. I think that another 
DA and a MVK 1. Form belong here. There are of course other options. Does the 
EK 1870 belong to the ribbon bar?

I like the bar  - but i`ve never seen such an early bar with this "Nicholl" hooks on it.

I would let the bar as it is now.

So the medalbar looks better except for the DA. A DA for NCOs and soldiers 
should go here. In contrast to the 1st class, this DA cross 2nd class could 
only be awarded to officers and higher military officials. The 1st class 
could also be awarded to lower ranks (see attachment)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
